You've gotta start somewhere...

So, a bad day for me means waiting for meds to kick in, blocking out the pain and normally watching YouTube! 
Christy Tomlinson has always interested me, so finding out that we have lots in common surprised me!  I watched a couple of her videos and one was her she art taster video.. and the impatient person that I am... Took some notes and once I collected the girls from school I grabbed some paints from my newly organised craft cupboards and splodged away! 
I am pleased with what I ended up with.  I used acrylic paints, inktense pencils, charcoal pencil and a black pen for outlining. 
For next time I am going to add more texture on the background and make sure that the doll is more in proportion to the page.
Not bad for a first attempt and no template!
